This work is unfinished. It is a composite of several essays that began, in some places, as condensations of longer and more academically-tinged works. In other places, they have their origin in my notes while trying to construct an imperative logic (hence, the stark change in tone between my discussions of mystical practice, and my discussions of logical truth.)
Giuseppe, 40, was arrested in a house raid in Verona on November 25th by the Digos (Divisione Invstigazioni Generali e Operazioni – political police), and has been accused of building and transporting an explosive device. Allegedly he was the creator of a mail bomb which was sent to Ladisa, a services company working in Turin’s CSR detention centre, in 2016 – the Digos say traces of his sweat were found on a 9-volt battery related to the attack.

The Government’s strategy of attrition does not take effect, now they appeal to the division between the exploited. By all means they try to sensitize the population with the decrease of the salary, the loss of labor sources and the danger of the Revolt for small businesses. The power and the media encourage the “protection of jobs” and private property, they want the pressure for fear of being poorer to be done by our neighbors to silence the protests. The psychosis of the “yellow vests” to protect their houses from invisible enemies moves to the commercial districts, where workers just as oppressed as the protesters face the latter with sticks, stones and even machetes. Performing a job for police that only serves the powerful and their interests.
Chilean anarchist Rodrigo Lanza was sentenced to five years in prison in Spain on November 26. He was accused of homicide in the death of a fascist in 2017.
The following is a statement on Rodrigo’s sentencing, orginially published in Spanish on the anarchist website Todo Por Hacer.
From Malcontent Editions, Catalonia
What’s most prominent about the situation in Catalonia during the past few years has not been the permanent mobilization, the number of people that have participated in it, or the content of the reclamations. What calls the attention most is the absence of an unmistaken contestation of the Procés which doesn’t come from spanish nationalist positions, in a game of mirrors between reactionary images. The firm oppositions to the catalan nationalist movement, coming from socially critical and revolutionary positions, could be counted on the fingers of a hand, always limited to the taking of positions by isolated comrades.

“They’re even gassing children!”
A small affinity group of teenagers raced past me, all in black bloc, one member slowing down only to look at me. I had put my red bandanna away, soaked as it was in tear gas and pepper spray. What remained was a skinny thirteen year old kid in a bright yellow rainjacket my mom had forced me to bring.
